Creative Campus Collaboration Recap at the University of Arizona EMPOWERING DIGITAL CREATIVITY FOR STUDENTS AND FACULTY ACROSS CAMPUS and preparing GRADUATES for the Digital Disruption




15 passionate speakers share Multiple perspectives


What is the Creative Campus Collaboration?

The Creative Campus Collaboration started mid-2015 with a gathering of schools who had the strategic vision to provide access to Adobe's Creative Cloud to all of their students on campus. These schools had the desire to foster creativity in learning using digital tools as a core skill set. They saw the need to improve student outcomes and stimulate critical thinking in learning. Creativity for non-creatives, regardless of areas of study and degree path. Providing students a personalized "digital makerspace" to create content instead of consuming it. These collaboration events bring together multiple stakeholders on campus who represent the academic and administrative leaders. They share best practices with the goal of bringing Digital Literacy to all students; focusing on learning experiences and student outcomes.

Each one of the institutions who presented during the day did so from different perspectives. Each institution shared their story through the various stakeholders who are actively involved in transforming the student experience on campus.

The Student perspective

Creativity is not simply a set of skills. Creativity is not simply familiarity with a set of behaviors or facility with a set of pre-fab strategies. Creativity is not simply a body of knowledge. Creativity only manifests when a person with the right sets of skills and knowledge invents or finds an appropriate problem that cannot be solved using any existing approach, but which is amenable to solution by that person's unique set of experiences.
